PRELINGER ARE CHIVES!


Published 2004


A collection of pleasantly disturbing short clips, taken exclusively from the freely downloadable movies at www.archive.org, set to a nerve-wracking original score. Carefully chosen, these clips convey, through conceptual progression, a whimsical, filthy dread. An inspiring trip through the flaky detritus hob-knobbing with the dust mites in the Prelinger Archives.

This movie is available as a DVD-compliant MPEG2, a VCD-compliant MPEG1, and whatever other formats you see listed to your left.

I agree 100% with "Stiiv" (the reviewer below me). This film is not just a bunch of random images thrown together overtop some music but yet carefully choosen clips woven together laid to a musical score that this guy created himself! I found it highly entertaining. It is sort of like people who don't understand electronic music, they criticize it as just a bunch of garbled noise which takes no talent to produce (just a bunch of button pushing).

Sure, people think it's "easy" to make a film like this...well, it's FAR from easy. Panucci has proven himself to be a 21st century media master of sorts, with his eye for absurdity & strangely beautiful music. A winner in all ways.

Subject: Best in the Series
The most sickly humorous of the trilogy.
Also, What is the name of the clip from whence the MonkeyMan came. I need it...very Devo.

Subject: I couldn't find any chives either!!
I didn't see any bestiality in this film, so I do think these key words are somewhat deceptive. I'd almost consider demanding my money back, but it was f-in' FREE!! Go figure!!!

OK, this is indeed brilliant. It's wonderful eye candy for those with a short term attention spam.... eh, span. I had no idea there were naked wimmen at this site!

Crazy, man, CRAZY!!?!

this type of film is very EASY to make.. I made a similar film, I imported about 30 clips from the siggraph 2003 review and using wim xp movie maker made a four minute movie...little skill but time consuming..I consider my film to be amusing for the first viewing and thereafter of little value.I am NOT judging this film
